The Economist Asks: Could Vladimir Putin lose the war in Ukraine?

Update: 2022-09-154

Description

Ukraine has made a remarkable turnaround. In a few days, its army liberated 6,000 square kilometres of territory–more than Russia had seized in the previous five months. Host Anne McElvoy asks Wesley Clark, a retired four-star US general, if Ukraine’s surprise counter-offensive marks a new phase in the war and what to expect if Russia retaliates. And Alexander Gabuev, a senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, analyses whether the cracks in Vladimir Putin’s aura of invincibility will damage his standing at home.

General Clark's analysis of the Ukranian War in this podcast episode is excellent; so insightful. Thank you.
